Deworming and Treatment for Internal Parasites
Unfortunately, all horses are susceptible to worms and other internal parasites. Regular deworming is a crucial part of your horse’s health. We’ll review your current regimen of deworming medications and possibly prescribe new ones.
Treatment for Infectious Diseases
We strive to avoid serious problems before they happen, administering vaccinations for tetanus, equine encephalomyelitis and other preventable infectious diseases. Nonetheless, if your horse contracts an infectious disease, such as strangles or Potomac horse fever, we deliver state-of-the-art treatment to minimize damage and restore health.
Treatment for Injury or Trauma
When your horse has an accident and suffers an injury or other trauma, Southern Equine Service is there for you. Whether it’s a head injury, broken bone, wound or exertional rhabdomyolysis, we’ll prescribe the best medications and therapies to keep your horse comfortable and speed up the healing process.
Treatment for Congenital Conditions
Some horses may have a congenital condition, ranging from hypothyroidism to stationary night blindness. We’ll diagnose your horse’s problems and make our best treatment recommendations.
Southern Equine Service accepts cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discovery and American Express. Collecting payment at the time services are rendered helps us keep our costs down for all our patients.
